Children should use technology like a computer, mobile phone, and television because they can use it for researching information, doing projects, using e-books instead of old and heavy textbooks, it also makes the world closer and smaller by talking in social media programs, also the social media programs can make your child speak up and be confident to talk, it also, improves your communicating skills, last, this is another way to teach children, and the children are interested in.

Although, people might say that these children will be cyber-bullied, but as long as they are taught to prevent it and stay away from it, this will not make a problem. Some may say:"They will get attracted to it and they will not be concentrating in school" But I think, if your child can self-control it, let most of the kids do, that will be not a problem. If your kid cannot control themselves from playing games, you can tell them the negative ways of getting addicted to playing games, and they will probably stop playing and control themselves from playing games. Some people may say "It makes your child's eyesight bad" but, if you use the media in an appropriate way of using it in a certain amount of time, and you can decide it and write on something, called Media Schedule, you can write the time that your child can use media and let them decide when to use the time. So, your child can still have a good eyesight. And, your child will be happy that you give them time to do whatever they want on technology items. Also, if you are still not unsure to let your kid use technology, there is some kind of apps that you can install to the media and you can always spy on your kid using the media.

REBUTTAL

I believe that children aren't getting other needed things because of all of these technologies, and their are many dangers to these devices.

1)Invisible Radiation from Wireless"Technology and Electricity Inhibits Your Oxygen Supply

2)Electrosmog can cause brain fog & electrosensitivity (ES)."Symptoms include:

~ Mental confusion

~ Headaches

~ Disruptive sleep patterns

~ Chronic fatigue

~ Depression

~ Hypersensitivity and erratic blood pressure

~ Skin complaint

~"Behavioural patterns in children

3)Cell phones are addictive.

A)One of the worst things with this technology is it allows young minds to have unlimited access to sexually graphic images and pornography.

It has been proven that when kids are exposed to sex at a young age, they have future problems with identity, intimacy, and successful relstionships.

B)There are studies that link large technology use to anxiety disorders and depression.

4)Studies show that too much texting and Social Media affect social skills and growth in a negative way.

It's like learning a language. A child is grasping for ways to communicate, and absorbs whatever is there. If the child hears Spanish, they absorb Spanish. If they hear English, they absorb English. If they are in social situations, they learn social skills. If all they primarily see is a device, they absorb communicating through a device, rather than through face to face human interactions. This is not helpful with interacting with kids, adults later, or being successful at work as an adult.
